The accurate reconstructions allow surgeons to practice various surgical approaches and better inform patients about their condition.
Surgical Theater’s VR medical visualisation platform takes typical 2D scans such as CTs and MRIs and turns them into a VR reconstruction. The digital reconstruction of the patient’s brain shows the tumour in great detail, allowing both the patient and surgeon to explore it from various angles and levels of depth.
The reconstruction can be used with a variety of Surgical Theater’s programs, depending on the goals of the neurosurgeon. It can be viewed either using a VR headset or displayed on a touchscreen.
The Precision VR Viewer helps the patient understand what their surgeon is explaining to them by showing them the detailed 360-degree reconstruction of their brain tumour. The technology can be brought directly into the operating room using the Surgical Navigation Advanced Platform. Each surgical step can be seen and even tested through the platform during the procedure for improved precision. A multi-user version of the software called the VR studio allows surgeons to walk other doctors and residents through specific cases.
